New Market Covid-19 News
22nd Jun 2020
22 June 2020 – A team member, who worked in the Bakery department at Food Lover’s Market New Market, has tested positive for Covid-19. She was last in the store on Sunday evening, 21 June 2020 – one day ago – as part of a night shift team. We were made aware of the positive test result when this team member was screened and consequently tested as part of a routine medical check-up today.
We have temporarily closed Food Lover’s Market New Market today to allow a professional cleaning company to deep clean and sanitise the store.
All employees that had direct contact with the team member have been instructed to self-quarantine for the remaining period of the 14-days since the last contact with their colleague and are being monitored for any symptoms of COVID-19.
We wish our affected colleague well and look forward to welcoming her back, along with the rest of the team.
We intend to reopen tomorrow morning, 23 June 2020, only once we are completely satisfied that all hygiene protocols have been completed.
We will continue our practice of screening our team members on arrival at work daily and during the day, as well as following all hygiene protocols – including sanitising hands and surfaces, practising social distancing and wearing masks.
